What is the difference between "a major difference", "difference" and "a minor difference"?



In project memory leveraging settings, there is an option for text difference penalty. 


As I learnt from WBT Online Documentation and the Editor configuration, I think there are three type of differences:

(1). major difference

(2). difference

(3). minor difference


My question is there any clear description about the category of difference?


Based on my practices, I guess that the text differences are:

(1). major difference: complete words (excl. functional words), number, spelling difference (plural, verb tense) 

(2). difference: case difference, functional words

(3). minor difference: tabs, punctuation marks


Feel free to contribute on this list. A comprehensive list is helpful for configuration.
